Just purchased one of these machines (white). Love it so far. I am installing a few accessories here and there but I do have a question.
I did a little ride on Sunday, about 60 miles. Now granted I am not sure if the dealer filled the tank completely but, after those 60 miles I got home with one bar showing on the gas gauge. Does that sound right? I have not filled it yet to see what how many gallons it takes but thinking the mileage would be better . Others with us did not seem to burn that much. Polaris rigs. Just asking.

There are a ton of guys reporting the same thing right now. Its all over the Teryx forum. Call your dealer. They may not have a fix yet, but there's going to have to be a fix soon with all the reports.

My gas gauge is very conservative it only took 5 gallons to fill when 2 bars showing, another time the empty was flashing and it still had over 2 gallons in it.
mover the weekend we did 65 miles of fast desert sand and tra

I did take it to the dealer. They completely checked the fuel tank/gauge. Drained the tank. Refilled a gallon at a time all while check ohm readings. Verified with Kawasaki tech support that apparently all is good. You need to let it settle they say. Cycle the key maybe they say. There is now a ticket with corporate concerning the fuel gauge. First drive was 60 miles, came home showing 1 bar on gauge. I filled it with 5.8 gallons. Had plenty left. Yesterday I go 45 miles, 3 bars showing. I turned key on next day, shows full. Filled with 3.1 gallons. so who knows.

That's crazy, for the life of me I can't think what it could be. Hopefully you get a quick response from Kawasaki.

Insane.
Maybe when the competition steps up then Kawi will. Segway (yes that brand) and Tesla are planning to step into this space. It might be what we consumers need!

Apparently the Segway's are going to be hybrids? That's going to be interesting to see in terms of performance.

I have the same issue. It will show 1 bar and only take a little over 5 gallons. I heard it is the design of the fuel tank that causes it. Its a real bummer not knowing how much you really have left

Always carry a 2gal Rotopax under the seat. Never trusted gas gauges and don't really care for walking. My X3 gas gauge is not all that great either and flakes out some times. After you get some miles and log a few rides you'll begin to know what kind of range you really have and you can start to care less about what the gauge might say at any given time
